Rough week, better weekend.....
Some AssWipe security cop for hire at the Greensboro Coliseum assaulted Gerry as he was shooting Miami cutting the net, and Wesley was with him. He was pushed off of his position, verbally assaulted, threatened with bodily harm "outside", and removed from the arena. I have known Gerry since I was 19 years old, and he does not take crap off of anyone, but when he is working and representing the Associated Press, he restrains his temper and he presents himself in a professional manner, so he took this abuse from this mofo, and he has spent this past week traumatized by the whole thing. Like I said I have known him a LONG time and I have never seen him react to any of the bullshit he has to deal with to get a picture like this.
I am sick to death of these militant attitude security people and cops that think they can abuse people's civil rights and treat people with so little disregard. That fucker went off on my child's father in front of her, she was helpless to do anything, and so was Gerry, or risk arrest. What gives someone the right to treat others this way. Gerry has been a professional photojournalist for 30 years, he knows the law when it comes to journalists rights and he knows how to stay out of trouble, But this is beyond acceptable to me. I have had to deal with the aftermath of this event all week, and it has not been fun. I want to just shake this asshole!
To all the aggressive out of control rage-aholics out there, you should think about how you treat people, your actions affect not only the person you attack, but their friends and family as well sometimes! How would you like your loved one to be abused and assaulted by Mr. Macho?! People have simply lost their moral compass, they forgot the golden rule, Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.... I even forget this sometimes, but I mostly try to live this way, like my mama taught me, like we learn in the South when we learn our manners and stuff :)
